Be sure to check your local Target to see if they have toys marked down! Many Target stores have toys marked down up to 70% off.

Twice a year Target has a big toy clearance sale. The first toy clearance sale typically happens in January.

This is a great time to buy gifts for birthdays, Christmas, and donations. Some Target stores only have toy clearance marked down 30%-50%, but should go down to 70% soon.

If you’d like to shop online Target has a toy “Last Chance Sale.” The items won’t be as cheap as in-store, but there will be great deals.

See more Target deals.

      I wonder if I call if they will tell me what % off the toys are at or if I have to drive down there to find out lol

        they refused to give me any information, so yesterday i just called like every 4 hours asking if they were marked down…that was after having showed up at 8am yesterday morning to realize they were NOT marked down. BUT, i went again this morning at 8am, and they were marked down! a lady was trying to get them finished up and got really aggravated at us trying to shop while she did it. we, as in me and other shoppers, weren’t being rude or anything…she was just hateful. they want to get rid of their stuff right, or they wouldn’t put it on sale? so, i really don’t get why they keep the whole thing hush hush when we know it’s coming and/or it happens! and, the rude employees…that’s just old!

      At my Target today, the best deals were on board games. Heavy markdowns…around 75% off. $15-$20 board games for $3-$6!

      • twlady

         Shannon, which board games did you find?

    • Savealotstella

      a LOT of the 30-50% off toys were marked down to 70% at my target today. a LOT of them still stayed the same. someone shopping there told me that sometimes they might mark the toys that didn’t go to 70% today down again next week. does anyone know whether this is a standard and/or typical?

    • Ssheets14

      The toys were 70% off at my Target. They had a ton of really great deals! Cabbage Patch dolls, Little People, Fisher Price Lap top, Legos, Thomas the Train.

      I have a question for someone….has anyone tried to use the $5 off a $50 purchase in conjunction with the spend $50 get a $5 gift card?  I don’t see why it wouldn’t work but I was just wondering if anyone has had success with it.

      • Elizabeth

        oh that would be great in conjunction with a coupon that they have in the mini bags of lays chips at walmart for $4.00 off a board game!

      Which target stores are you going to?  I live near the Lexington store…just don’t want to make a trip there unless they are having the same sale.  Thanks everyone!

      • Courtney Crane

        All Targets have marked down…different stores go at different times, but at this point all Tagets should have toys marked down to at least 50%.

        •  The store closest to us never goes past 30% – ever. However I drive right past it to the next store, and today found 70% off with TONS of toys left!

      I did good today at Spring Hill, TN store. I had been watching the Disney Jungle Junction toy-was $53.99 down to $26-they had a ton so I kept watching for a couple weeks. Found 1 today for $16 for my daughter’s Christmas. Then Trio blocks was $30 down to $9 for my nephew. Was so excited I looked though toys when I just needed milk/banannas. There are a ton of kids shoes on clearance. I got my daughter a few for $2.98 each and then some tennis shoes for $5-$6 for church donation!!!

    • I found tons marked down at a Target a little down the road. The one closest to home is at 30% and said they aren’t going lower. I found lots for my boys for Christmas, and a few things to add to our Operation Christmas Child boxes :) Thanks for the heads up!!!

      There are 4 Targets in my area and the two I’ve been to have toys 30-70% off.  I found alien legos for half price in the regular lego section not in the sale aisle.  I noticed they both had a clearance toy aisle and clearance toys scattered around the other toy aisle, so a little hunting found some great toys!

      Flowood, Mississippi Target has two 70% sections, one 50% section, and one 30% section as of today. Plenty of stock left.

      A target we hit was also clearing out dollar section items from the summer season at %70 off. So .30 for a lot of fun stuff to tuck away. Lots of glow in the dark stars, glowing mini animal packets, slinkys, etc.

      These were NOT in the usual dollar item section at the front but had been moved to a remote shelf in the back.
